السلام عليكم.
(as-salāmu ʿalaykum)
My name is Afrah, and welcome to Urdu Top Words. So our today's lesson is Top 10 Compliments You Always Want to Hear. Let's get started!
آپ حسین ہیں.
(Aap haseen hain.)
"You are beautiful."
So, guys, this word, haseen, it's conveying the word, the meaning of "beautiful; pretty; lovely", you can definitely not use it for any guy, mostly it is used for girls. So if you want to use it for a guy, you have to use another or the word that is -
(wajih), and in English, we say "you're handsome."
آپ خوبصورت ہیں.
(Aap khubsoorat hain.)
"You're smart!"
آپ ایک شاندار دوست ہیں.
(Aap aik shandaar dost hain.)
"You are an awesome friend."
آپ کا اندر آپ کے باہرسے بھی زیاده خوبصورت ہے.
(Aap ka andar aap ky bahir say bhi ziada khubsurat hai.)
"Your inside is even more beautiful than your outside."
I think this is one hell of a compliment, if you can get it from someone.
آپ کی تجربے کی فہرست متاثر کن ہے.
(Aap ki tajarbay ki fehrist mutasir kun hai.)
"Your resume is impressive. "
بہت اچھا کام کیا!
(Bohat acha kam kia!)
"Great job!"
These kind of compliments, like "great job," "good job," and saying it in Urdu -
بہت اچھا کام کیا!
(Bohat acha kam kia!)
It's quite common in Pakistan, and you can not only use it in the in the office environment but you can use it also for people working for you at your house or you would hear mothers also saying it to their kids for any tasks they do at home.
یہ جیکٹ آپ پر اچھی لگتی ہے
(Yeh jacket aap per achi lagti hai.)
"That jacket looks nice on you."
آپ کی پسند اچھی ہے.
(Aap ki pasand achi hai.)
"You have good taste."
This sentence can also mean "your choice is good."
آپ کی مسکراہٹ خوبصورت ہے.
(Aap ki muskurahat khubsurat hai.)
"Your smile is beautiful."
Yeah, I know. :)
آپ بہت خوبصورت لگ رہے/ رہی ہیں.
(Aap bohat khubsurat lag rahay / rahi hain.)
"You look gorgeous. "
Guys, over here, the word
(khubsurat), in this context, can be used for a guy and a girl, both.
So that's all, guys, for this lesson. See you until next time.
